Stockpiling Shop Owner Could Be Out Of Pocket Due Brexit Extension

Edward Coyle who owns and runs Centra in Raphoe, Co.Donegal has outlined that items that he has been stockpiling ahead of a no-deal Brexit, will go out of date, unless he sells them.

This due the recently announced no-deal Brexit extension, which has been pushed back to October.

He has been stockpiling UK-made items, such as Jacob’s Custard Creams, Heinz Beans and garlic bread, for months in anticipation of a no-deal Brexit, reported the Belfast Telegraph.

Speaking with the the Belfast Telegraph, Coyle said: “We were ready for March 29 and we were ready on 12 April. Now this delay has wrecked our plans.”

“We have to sell off all the stuff that we had stockpiled and we have to stockpile again for October, but my worry is that Brexit can happen at any time."


Made In The UK

Goods that are produced in Great Britain, is essentially, the items that Coyle has said that he is increasing his stock of.

“That would be biscuits such as custard creams, which are manufactured in the Great Britain and brought across, and brands like Heinz." he said.
